Mr. KNOWLES:

In paragraph y of the
interpretation section it is provided that:
Terminal elevator includes every elevator or warehouse which receives or ships grain and is located at any point declared by the Governor in Council to be a terminal.
Under this section 3 there is nothing to prevent every elevator at Saskatoon and Moosejaw becoming terminal elevators because every elevator, just as well as the Government elevator, will be an elevator which receives and ships grain and is situated at a point declared by the Governor in Council to be a terminal. The Governor in Council will declare Saskatoon and Moose-jaw to be terminal points and this clause says then that every elevator which is situated at these points shall be a terminal elevator. Consequently, it would look as if the local elevators in Moosejaw and Saskatoon would hot come under sections 195 to 207, namely, the clauses in regard to cars and the car order book.
